Sticking with the theme of healthy, simple and wholesome foods like yesterday’s granola, I bring you a family classic (via my mom) that can hardly be called a recipe. If you want to use up some fresh garden (or farmer’s market) tomatoes and herbs and want dinner in the time it takes to heat up water and boil pasta…well, give this fresh and flavorful recipe a go.

Fresh Pasta Sauce


  • 4-ish Fresh tomatoes, diced
  • Fresh basil, minced
  • Half an onion, diced
  • Two cloves of garlic, diced

Throw it all in a bowl. If you’re patient, put it in the fridge for an hour or so to chill and for the flavors to mix. If you aren’t patient (I’m not), go ahead and dump it on fresh, hot pasta right away.
